Lyrics

Verse 1

On a hill far away
Stood an old rugged cross
The emblem
Of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross
Where the Dearest and Best
For a world
Of lost sinners was slain

Chorus

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

Verse 2

Oh that old rugged cross
So despised by the world
Has a wondrous attraction for me
For the dear Lamb of God
Left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary

Chorus

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

Verse 3

To the old rugged Cross
Will I ever be true
Its shame and reproach gladly bear
Then He'll call me some day
To that home far away
Where his glory forever I'll share

Chorus

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

Chorus

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day
For a crown

And exchange it some day for a crown
